Toyota considers UK production cuts

Toyota is considering whether to cut one of its production lines at its Burnaston plant in Derbyshire.

No decision has been taken yet, but the suggestion follows on from Toyota suspending a production line for more than a year at its Takaoka plant in Japan.

Toyota employs 4,100 workers at the Burnaston plant and said it was considering halting a line that just makes Auris models and moving all production onto one line that builds Auris and Avensis models. There would be no job cuts as all of the Auris workers would transfer over to the new line.
